They got the job done. They were honest about what they were going to do. This was plumbing work. I'd probably give them an A.
They replaced a hot water heater. I chose them because my friend referred them. I'd give them an A.
I used them when I first bought the house, and I just decided to call them again. I didn't have a problem. The gentleman came out, did what he had to do, came out on time, and finished at an appropriate time. That was fine with me. He came out, he did what he had to do, and that was it. I had used them before—when I purchased my house, the real estate agent that I had apparently had used them, and I got their phone number. They did some plumbing work on my unit in my house. I thought I had some mishaps with all the plumbers, but I didn't have a problem. I would say they're an A-grade company. They came out, and they did what they had to. I haven't had any setbacks with what they did with the faucet.
They did a really good job. I actually wasn't here; I am speaking strictly on the work after they left. They were installing a kitchen faucet. I would say we had no complaints.
They came and did a good job. They installed a water heater and fixed our washing machine. I'd rate the company as an A.
He gave some suggestions of what I could do in the future, so I thought he was very informative. I had a situation where something was blocked and flooded in the bathroom. I found them in Best Pick Reports. They're excellent.
They worked in my building for 30 years, so they know the building really well. I'd give the company an A grade.
They did the work I asked them to do, and it was fairly quick. It was just basic plumbing work—like work with a pipe. I think I'd give them an A.
Real Plumbers definitely did a really good job. The one job was outstandingly perfect. They drilled through my floor to put a water connection in for my refrigerator so I could get ice and water out of the fridge. It was wonderful, and it went so well.
They do a good job, and they're very friendly. The owner checked in with me specifically, and I thought that was nice. The showers were not working right. There was debris on the pipes because it was new construction, so they had to take the showerheads apart and pull out whatever that was blocking the water path. They get an A grade in my book.
